One of the biggest complaints about kitchen design is the lack of counter space. Considering all the kitchen activities that require a countertop, as well as appliances that are permanently located there, you want to fit as much open horizontal surface area in a kitchen as possible. An easy way to do this is by adding an island or breakfast bar to an L-shaped kitchen.
When it comes to kitchen islands, we generally think of additional storage, preparation and serving space in the kitchen. But you may be surprised to learn that kitchen islands can waste a lot of space. Choosing the wrong island or placing it in the wrong spot can be a mess, especially in a work area that gets overly cluttered.
Ah, the kitchen–the heart of the home! More than just a place to cook, it’s where we gather, start our days, connect with each other over a meal or a cup of coffee, share our ups and downs, and celebrate together. The kitchen–more than any other room in your home–contributes to your family’s health and happiness, so designing a space with style and function is essential.
So, whether you are designing a kitchen from scratch or just looking for some swoon worthy inspiration for your existing kitchen, here are some tips for creating a gorgeous contemporary-style kitchen.
Use pendant lights or a series of mini-pendants to enhance the beauty and functionality of the kitchen. Pendants look great above kitchen sinks, while a series of mini-pendants work well over breakfast bars and kitchen islands. Install under-cabinet lighting to make sure that the counters have sufficient lighting for common kitchen tasks.
We love this statement concrete kitchen island, particularly when paired with more natural materials such as a solid wood floor and backsplash.
